Chocolate Mallow Bars

CHOCOLATE MALLOW BARS. Rich, dark chocolate enrobes marshmallows and walnuts in this easy-to-make candy.I’m not a huge marshmallow fan but these Chocolate Mallow Bars are heaven.  If you love chocolate then this dessert bar is for you.  When the marshmallow and chocolate mixed together

and add the walnuts, it is almost like a great big piece of fudge and more.  You will never go wrong when you show up at a party, baby shower or at any event.  Everyone is going to ask you for the recipe, they are that good and easy too.  I am looking at ways I can substitute the recipe a little so that it will be low calorie.  Enjoy!


Serves: 36
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
  • 2⅔ cups chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy or whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 13 marshmallows, halved around the circumference; or 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts, toasted if desired
  1. Line an 8" x 8" square or 9" round pan with parchment, and grease the parchment. If you don't have parchment, use waxed paper or plastic wrap.
  2. Combine the chocolate, cream, espresso powder, corn syrup, and vanilla in a microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Heat the mixture in the microwave (or in a saucepan set over low heat on the stove) till the cream is hot and the chocolate has softened.
  4. Remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate has melted and everything is smooth.
  5. Spread about ¾ cup of the melted chocolate in the bottom of the pan.
  6. Space the marshmallow halves atop the chocolate. Note: feel free to substitute mini marshmallows for the marshmallow halves here. Distribute the walnuts evenly in the spaces between the marshmallows.
  7. Spread the remaining chocolate atop the marshmallows and walnuts, spreading to the edge of the pan so that everything is covered.
  8. Refrigerate for an hour or so, to set the chocolate. Remove from the refrigerator, and loosen the candy from the edges of the pan.
  9. Bring to room temperature, and leave in the pan, covered with plastic, until you're ready to cut into squares.
